Hello and happy new year!
Just popping by to share a sneaky peek of a project I’m sharing over at the Neat & Tangled blog today:
Head over there for more details on how I created this, and thanks for stopping by!
Hello there! Time to showcase another awesome group of stamp and die sets for the Winnie & Walter April / May Release!
Day 2 is for the premiere of In Bloom: Lola’s Bouquet, designed by the hugely talented Joni Andaya, Essentials: Audrey Cutaways and In a Word Cutaways (of which there are four word dies in total) Here’s my first card:
The background is so quick and easy to create for this one, especially with the gorgeous array of images in Joni’s set! I began by stamping the roses and leaves onto a panel of white cardstock in an arrangement that began in the bottom left hand corner and finished in the top right.
I used a combination of inks from Hero Arts and Simon Says stamp – the two step process for these images gives you so many possibilities and allows you to create endless floral backgrounds! (would also make great wrapping paper too!). I used the small tag die from Essentials: Katherine Cutaways to cut an aperture into the panel so that I could create a shaker element.
There’s a sneaky peek of a stamp set being showcased later this week for the sentiment, which I stamped directly onto the card base with Delicata Golden Glitz ink before foam mounting the panel on top. Here’s my second card:
I absolutely adore the vibrancy of this card, and can only seem to achieve it with Dylusions ink sprays. The background was created simply by spritzing the sprays onto a large acrylic block, then spritzing a watercolour panel with water and stamping the inky block onto the watery paper!
The ink bleeds and moves around so beautifully whilst mixing together to create a subtle blend. I trimmed the watercolour panel down with the largest frame die from Essentials: Katherine Cutaways and foam mounted it to a white card base. I then used the In A Word: Hello cutaway to die-cut the large sentiment along with some other die-cuts, also being revealed later this week 😉
I foam mounted the large die-cut to the card front and used small blobs of Glossy Accents to adhere the leaf die-cuts around the sentiment. To finish, I added some coordinating coloured sequins!
I hope you get a chance to check out the projects from Julie and Shay on the Winnie & Walter blog, along with the rest of the Winnie & Walter talent. The new release will be available at 22.00 CST on Friday, 1st of May!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hey everyone! Welcome to the start of the April / May release week for Winnie & Walter!
Day 1 is the Premiere of The Big, the Bold and Comfort stamp set / cutaways + The Big, the Bold and Friends stamp set / cutaways – as usual, there are some really lovely sentiments in these sets! Here’s my first card:
This card uses sentiments from The Big, the Bold and Comfort (and maybe a sneak peek of a stamp set being showcased tomorrow ;-)) I began by creating a muted, inky panel as by smooshing a few Distress Inks onto a craft matt, lightly spritzing with water and dropping a piece of white cardstock into the inky puddles.
The panel was heat set and I repeated the process a few more times until I’d achieved the desired look. I then stamped the sentiment with black dye in and foam mounted the panel to a white card base.
The little flowers were created by stamping the images onto scraps of inky cardstock with black dye ink, fussy cut out and then adhered to the card front. Here’s my second card:
This card combines sentiments from The Big, the Bold and Friends with banner images from an older set, The Big, the Bold and Extras. I began by die-cutting a panel of white cardstock with the large frame from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways and then stamping the solid banner image three times with bright Distress Inks.
I stamped the outline banner image, the large sentiment and some tiny stars with black dye ink on top of the coloured banners and foam mounted the panel to a white card base. I then stamped the smaller sentiments onto white cardstock and roughly cut out with a pair of scissors before foam mounting them to the card front.
For a bit of sparkle, I added some sequins 😉
